We had an elevator installed in our new home built as a result of Super Storm Sandy.
After rainstorms the elevator pit fills with water about 20-25 gallons on average.
I have been using a submersible pump to remove the water but would like to more permanent solution for when we are not around.
Is it possible to install a sump pump in an elevator pit in an area with a high water table? We are concerned that the recurring water incursion will rust the elevator framing. Thanks
